The Core Distro Plate from Alphacool with VPP Apex Pump should not be missing in any Custom water cooling system. It considerably simplifies the construction, planning and maintenance of complex water circuits and thanks to the pre-assembled VPP Apex, no additional pump assembly is required.
A core element of the Alphacool Core Design series are the chrome-plated G1/4" connections made of brass. With the Core Distro Plate, the connections are only embedded and not screwed into a thread as is usually the case, to avoid the problem of possible leakage due to cracking through to bypass the direct screwing into the acrylic.The two-part connections are provided with an O-ring and counter each other during assembly in the acrylic, which not only enables absolute tightness, but also a clear and functional look of the Alphacool Core Design series.
The Distro Plate can be easily mounted on the housing panel or on a radiator without the use of tools using the core push mounting kits included in the scope of delivery. Alphacool's push-mounting enables the distroplate to be firmly seated in the housing panel or on the radiator and allows easy disassembly for maintenance or expansion projects.
The Core Distro Plate has an integrated reservoir and an integrated VPP apex pump and is available as a 240mm or 360mm variant with the pump top positioned on the left or right. This makes the Distro Plate ideal for custom water circuits in which the CPU and graphics card(s) are to be cooled at the same time. Thanks to the arrangement of the G1/4" connections, complicated hose routes are a thing of the past. There is also an additional drain port on the side, with which the Distro Plate can be emptied easily and easily.
High-quality choice of materials & brilliant lighting
The Alphacool Core Distro Plate is made of high-quality acrylic glass, which allows a clear view of the coolant and creates a brilliant play of colors thanks to the built-in digitally addressable aRGB lighting. The lighting can be controlled via a digital aRGB header on the mainboard or optionally by Alphacool's Aurora Eiscontrol aRGB controller (item no.: 15360).
The Apex VPP pump from Alphacool does without a spherical bearing and uses a ceramic axis instead. The coils of the motor have been moved from the inside out to make the pump more stable and smooth-running and to significantly reduce the vibrations that occur. Another positive side effect is that the power consumption could be almost halved.
The Apex VPP pump has a 4-pin fan connector that connects to the motherboard or to an external controller. This allows the speed range of the pump to be controlled and read out via PWM. The pump is powered using a SATA connector on the power supply.
- Can be mounted on the radiator or on the panel
